Neill Blomkamp will forever be known as the guy who made the critically acclaimed District 9. Since then he has made Elysium and Chappie, but these films didn’t please the movie-loving community at all. The next film that he will be taking on is the next chapter in the Alien franchise.

Regardless of all that, District 9 fans (and Why Ed) have been wondering what is going on with the sequel District 10. We now have an update on that from the director in a recent interview with IGN in which he reveals that that he has an idea for the film, but it may be a while before we actually see it get made.

“I have an idea for District 10, which is really cool. The problem is I feel like Chappie is the end of three films that have a similar stylistic approach to them. Chappie is the odd one out in that is has no socio-political underpinnings. It doesn’t have my experiences as a kid in South Africa incorporated into it. And Elysium– although it doesn’t have my experiences as a kid in South Africa, it has the same notion of oppressor in the elites, and the large population base beneath it. And Chappie doesn’t, but they are still part of a trilogy. So moving forward I would love to realize this idea of District 10 – I have every intention to do it, I just need to find the right time to do it – to not go back to Johannesburg and shoot something similar, yet.”

What do you think? Will District 10 be a hit like its predecessor or will it flop like Chappie? PS: please don’t use Die Antwoord again… ever!
